Keith Olbermann Calls Out Carrie Prejean

by at . Comments

Keith Olbermann, in the video below, addressing Carrie Prejean:

Your grandfather did not fight to protect your right to answer a question during a network television soft porn special without consequences or fallout... He fought to protect you from having the government stop us from speaking our minds.

We know you despise Olbermann, Conservatives. And it's hard for even the most left-wing nut to defend his maniacal rants sometimes.

But we beseech readers - in the interest of open, fair debate - to watch and listen to the MSNBC host's take on Prejean below. He doesn't mention gay marriage once, instead focusing on the illogical argument that Carrie was somehow simply exercising her right to free speech.

As referenced in the quote above, Olbermann argues:

  • The First Amendment has nothing to do with getting flak for speaking one's mind; it simply protects a citizen from being imprisoned for that act.
  • Moreover, Carrie wasn't punished for her answer, as she claims. She's received national acclaim and didn't even lose her crown, despite blatantly violating her contract!

All of Prejean's supporters say it's unfair to attack someone for exercising her freedom of speech. But what if she said she believes all African-Americans should be slaves? Would critics be allowed to pounce on her then? It's just her opinion, right?

Also, let's not forget: Prejean said her latest round of topless photos were due to a "windy day." We mean... come on!!!

Carrie Prejean Quotes

I think it's great that Americans are able to choose one or the other. We live in a land that you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite marriage and, you know what, in my country and my family I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to anyone out there but that's how I was raised and that's how I think it should be between a man and a woman.

Carrie Prejean

Marriage is good. There is something special about unions of husband and wife. Unless we bring men and women together, children will not have mothers and fathers.
